Protecting your assets is high on the priority list for most people. You wouldn’t consider buying a house and not insuring it; likewise before you drive your new car purchase out of the dealership you’ve probably already organised insurance for it. So why then would you leave yourself open to risk and susceptible to loss when it comes to the investment you have made in your horse? Frankly if it’s worth owning, feeding and training, then it has to be worth insuring! The sheer speed, unpredictability and fragile nature of the thoroughbred make them susceptible to a catalogue of injuries, illnesses and diseases. As such, we see insurance as a necessity whether you have just purchased a yearling at auction to race or your pride and joy in the horse that is racing in your colours every weekend. Perhaps you have a future champion on your hands – isn’t that the dream!
A standard Thoroughbred Insurance Policy covers the death of your horse due to:
- Natural Causes
- Humane Destruction
Theft coverage is also included free as part of your standard racehorse insurance policy, as well as the freedom to transport your horse anywhere within and between Australia and New Zealand and remain covered.
